Good cast, good story, bad execution. Ended nowhere.
An original idea on a story seen before.
A rather grim and inplausible story that lacked any rhythm.
A great horror/monster movie with a western (cowboy) aspect. Very good acting and a captivating screenplay keeps your attention throughout the movie.
Beautifully filmed, great detail, a movie to be watched more than once.
Set in the days of Cowboys and Indians, this movie is set on the frontier and starts with the death of two families, and the disappearance of their children. Other settlers and the authorities assume it was Indians, and set out together on horseback to rescue the children. The settlers and authorities disagree as to methods (brutal as another reviewer termed it) and directions, and so they part ways. The film follows the settlers, as they succumb one by one, either to the Burrowers, or to each other.
Completely pointless movie. Don't bother.
Brutal. What the "Burrowers" do to their victims doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but is certainly VERY unsettling. A previous reviewer here complained about the lack of action and shots of the monsters themselves, but real horror fans know that there are more sophisticated ways to unnerve an audience. I loved all that was implied in this movie, as well as all that was shown.
Excellant Western moive starts out as a kidnapping with a family being slain and the lover of one of the family thinks a tribe did it and goes after them looking for the family but the indians are the least of their worries as they are picked off one by one by musterious creatures. Acting is well done by all and its good to see a hero in a derby since there hasnt been many since John Steed of the Avengers. The direction shows promise and the creatures look impressive with an inventive way of trapping their prey and a decent amount of blood, gore and slime. And as always with some films a bit of torture thrown in as well to please the Hostel crowd. But my only gripe is the ending is very ironic and feels like they ended the film too soon but apart from thats its a worthy view but Copperhead is a better horror/Western
Was slow as hell with no much action or horror stuff. Not enough to label it Horror or scary. The trailer was good and that's much all about it. The dialogues are weak, the storyline is most of the time going nowhere. You get to see more of the grass moving than the creatures themselves. It is a very weak movie. Again the trailer was strong and I was expecting much about this and actually got nothing very exciting. Give it a miss.
For an indie 'horror' film, director JT Petty certainly brings the suspense! Whilst the movie does take some time to get to the 'good stuff', the set up of characters, story and the amazing landscape only build up the tension of what is to come.
